By | Buying, New Construction | No Comments

Finding that perfect piece of property to build your dream home on isn’t always effortless. It’s easy to get lost in beautiful views or the perfect location and not take the time to research some of the other essential characteristics of the property.

Skilled Build | Terra View Homes

By | New Construction | No Comments

Recently I had the absolute pleasure of sitting with David Brix of Terra View homes at his office in North Guelph. Amanda Lord tagged along so that we could ask David some hard-hitting questions from both the construction and the design fronts. The plan was to talk current developments, what projects are on the horizon for Terra View and to review their quality of construction.  First off, he is about the most welcoming guy possible when you sit with him. Really puts everyone in the room at ease. That’s the type of builder that makes folks like myself and Amanda…

In my mind, that makes me a pretty good candidate to tell the story.  I will throw out a small disclaimer first – this article is intended to be a source of information for…

By | Buying, New Construction | No Comments

Many are finding it difficult to find that “perfect” home in Guelph right now with prices soaring in this competitive market.  The resale market is tough right now, there is no disputing that.  The houses that have the floorpan, upgrades, and big lots are the homes that everybody is looking for.  Seller’s are holding back offers for a week and then all hell breaks loose as multiple offers fly in all at once on offer day.  The result: these sought after homes are selling at record breaking prices per square foot, and to stay competitive aside from price, buyer’s are…
